Even though we were only here for four days, we feel like we squeezed in at least a month’s worth of fun. By day, we were mild mannered sun junkies, but by night, we turned into wild and crazy party people. Our nights usually started with a champagne or two at our favourite little bar. The staff were very friendly and came up with nicknames for everybody. For some reason, they decided to name us "drunky, drunky’, not sure why. After storming through a dinner buffet (if I never see another one, I’ll be happy) we would usually take in the evening show
Not only did our resort provide entertainment in the form of shows, they also provided an endless supply of cocktails. If you sat still for longer than three minutes, someone would come up and offer you a drink. Much like Mexico, responsible service of alcohol did not even come into these people’s minds.
Food was also in abundance. We could choose from one of about seven restaurants and each one was stocked full of deliciousness. Needless to say we ate our little hearts out.
After a show and maybe a dance, we would usually head to the casino to hit up the tables. Craig and I quickly ascertained that we have gambling problems. Joel would sensibly take half our chips and cash them in so we wouldn’t just blow it all. Then we would swarm him, snatching money out of his pockets. I am happy to report that after 4 days, I came out on top. Not by much, but definitely not behind.
Our favourite bar featured karaoke after eleven
Four days later and it was time to say goodbye to Punta Cana but more importantly, Craig. We loved travelling with him for the past four weeks and will miss him. Thanks Kreg! Next stop US of A!
